bp is reinventing itself, and digital capability is at the core of this vision. Our Innovation and Engineering teams develop and maintain the strategic platforms that enable our future digital vision.
Our team’s purpose is to re-conceptualise identity issues discovering practical solutions enabling teams to build secure identity, authentication, authorisation, resource management and governance systems to access digital content at scale.
As an identity architect, you form part of the identity platforms team, building identity products. You will work with customers to understand their requirements, provide recommendations and deliver solutions. You smartly prioritise delivery to meet the needs of multiple customers.
You will use your identity and security experience to identify and recommend opportunities for bp to streamline the experience. Additionally, you will use your expertise to develop customer-facing guidance such as case studies, talks, and blog posts. Furthermore, you will contribute to the broader IAM community creating enduring capability.

You will contribute to digital transformation initiatives from an architectural perspective, facilitating the delivery of solutions. You will bring good hands-on skills in key technologies and rapidly assess new technologies with a commercial mindset.
  • Safety and Compliance: The safety of our people and customers is our highest priority. You will advocate and help ensure our architectures, designs, and processes enhance operational safety culture and improve our digital security.
  • Team: You will play an integral role in building the team's skillset while demonstrating your leadership values through delegation, motivation and trust. You will not just lead, but "do".
  • Relationships: You will build strong relationships across the business and digital teams. You will understand the long-term needs of the solutions you are developing and enable delivery by building a rapport with team members inside and outside BP.
